Hi all.....well as you know we left my little stash minder busy building something last time....
All i heard last night was banging and sawing, and a few colourfull words coming from my craft room as Rotty worked on his project all night.
"How's it going Rotty?"
"Mighty fine boss, mighty fine!....been working on a fail-proof plan to get rid of that mouse once and for all!"
"Really Rotty? I must say i'm impressed with your confidence in light of your past "mishaps".
"So what have you dreamed up this time my little sewer assassin?
"DADAAAAAAAAAAA!!!......feast your eyes on this little beauty boss!"
"Wow Rotty, what on earth is that contraption?
"It's simple boss....what you are looking at is a one of a kind, double action mouse elimination device!" I call it the "Snap, Thwackle and Pop!"
"Well i have to admit Rotty, i wondered what you were going to come up with next, but this takes the biscuit!" "Well done fella!"
"Thank you boss....now pay attention....if i can run you through it......first off, we have the standard issue mousetrap".......
"On it's own, not a bad method of mouse trapping i admit, but couple it with my home made bow, and what you get is a double trouble mashing machine with a one way ticket to Calvin Mouses left ear!!!"
"Nice one Rotty, tell me more.......oh and nice glasses by the way!"
"Cheers boss...anyway.....so i guess you must be wondering why the name "Snap, Thwackle and Pop?"
"Well yes i was wondering Rotty, as well as wondering where your whiskers had gone?"
Ah, got burnt off in the accident last week......anyway.....first Calvin Mouse sees the fake cheese on the trap......he steps on it and SNAP!!!!!......the trap then flips him over and loads him into the bow......THWACKLE!!!!!!.....thats the sound of the most powerfull bow you'll see this side of the sewer......i borrowed some of your hemp cord for the string if thats ok?"
"Thats fine Rotty.....and the Pop?"
"POP!!!.....is the sound of Calvin Mouse's ears as he gets fired out of the window and back to Maddy's craft room in Leeds! I've perfected the calculations to ensure the trajectory is spot on."
"My my Rotty, what a technical business this mouse elimination can be eh?"
"Certainly is boss.....hang on, i reckon that bow could do with tightening a little bit".
"Umm Rotty, i don't like to interfere or anything, but you do realise that trap is set don't you?
"Do not fear my worrysome boss, a little known fact is that the sewer rat has the stealthyness of a....well a stealthy thing.....we can tread so lightly, you'd think a shadow was on it!!!"
"Now then....just a little more this way....
"ROTTYYYYYY!!!!!! WATCH OUT FOR MY COPIIIIIIIIIIIICS!!!
"Oh nice one Rotty!!!! Are you ok?"
"Uggghhhh.....aggghhhhhhh....get me out....GET ME OUT!!!!!
"What are you like Rotty.....i think your calculations were slightly off mate!"
"Very funny boss, have you ever thought of doing the comedy circuit?!" Just get me out of here will ya?".
"Sorry Rotty...i guess it's back to the drawing board then eh?"
"Oh yes boss, just as soon as i get the feeling back in my legs....that mouse is FOR IT!!!!!"
